Fighting the Giants
1. Not everyone fights the same giants. Some of the things I struggle with might seem silly to you. On the other hand, I may have absolutely no trouble with something that you fight against all the time. Have compassion for people no matter what their giant is.
2. Not every giant will attack the same way. Goliath boldly went out before the entire Israelite army, insulting them and their God and challenging them to come fight him. In II Samuel 22, one of the giants was sneaky. He got behind enemy lines and almost killed David before one of his men struck him.
3. The same method does not kill every giant. What worked at one point against the giants in your life may not work at another point. Be sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit in how to battle the giants.
4. No matter how big the giants are, or how great their weapons are, if God is on our side, then the giants are no match for us.
Just wanted to share a little encouragement today. Been fighting any giants lately?
